Hey sushis, how the hell do I get off the computer?

I spend practically all day browsing various boards and forums and doing nothing of value. I have a couple non-computer-based hobbies but barely any motivation. I've tried to make my computer time more productive (studying languages, programming, even just watching stuff or playing games) but I can never stick with it because to be honestly I hate the computer and everything to do with it.

I'm at the point where you could call me internet addicted, but it's mostly because I feel like I have nothing else to do. I could stop using the computer, but I have no idea how I'd fill my time. I guess I'd stare at the wall? My social life isn't too vibrant either and that doesn't help.

Has anyone else been here / does anyone have some ideas?

>Hey sushis, how the hell do I get off the computer?
Get busy with real life stuff, from exercise to going to the library or walks to meet people in meetups, events, conventions idk
Well that's how I try, sometimes it works, but for job reasons need to get better at coding so that needs a computer.


it's hard isn't it. The way is to find something fun outside of computers to fill your time with.


Yup, I think distraction is key. You have to fill the void with something else.


Exactly. I've been brainstorming for weeks now on something I can do off the computer (and outside in general), and I finally found something: playing w/ a super ball. Childish? Maybe. But if it's not hot/rainy outside, it's great cardio and a fun way to kill 30 minutes.


As I've gotten older I've gradually lost the anxiety and fear of missing out if I'm not constantly on the computer. Also got rid of browser bookmarks so I don't default to mindless browsing.

When I feel like I'm defaulting I just get up and take a walk or start sewing. I find myself wandering outside more now that I bought a camera.

Do you have any plans for today sushis?
Or if you're reading this later: Did you have a good day?

I'm pretty excited for today. Going to finish work on a project and add some new plants to my greenhouse while I still can.

I've got unlimited motivation and passion inside of me, I just feel like it's been permanently held inside of me, meaning all my motivation creates is scenarios in my head where I went through with the action. I have a lot planned but my god I can't get out of the rut that is procrastination


I used to wake up a couple of minutes before my alarm. When I then dozed off again I dreamed about getting up and starting my day. Once my alarm actually signaled me it's time to get out of bed, I had to go through all of that again, even though I thought I already had that behind me.

This taught me how to start doing things.


I channel that all into writing. Then, the next day, I act on my vision, having already clarified it in writing.

First comes a vague feeling.
Second comes the refinement of that feeling into a plan.
Third comes the action, bringing that plan into reality.

Sometimes I get stuck on acting. When that happens, I go back to refinement. If I get stuck on refinement, I revisit the original vague feeling.

The feeling is the why.
The plan is the how.
The action is the what.

If you feel very motivated, but you haven't decided on the direction, throw something at the wall. Keep throwing random ideas at the wall until you find one that lets you get to the next step.

I like to think of it like navigating a maze in the dark. You can only move forward until you hit a wall. Once you hit that wall, you can go back to where you started, or you can move along the wall, hoping that there will be another path that leads you where you want to go.

Getting a hard assignment done.

What makes it particularly satisfying for me is my schools class program makes it so you can't start the next lesson without completing all the assignments of the previous unit. If I get stuck that holds everything up, but if I finish smooth sailing from there

There's something peculiar about falling asleep as the first rays of dawn start peeking in through your blinds. A feeling of guilt, mixed with comfiness, as you fall asleep when everyone else rises from their slumber. Unhealthy, but acceptable in reasonable amounts.
It happens to me far too often, though…

When do sushi rolls usually fall asleep? I don't doubt there are other people here with wack schedules.

I usually intend to be in bed, with the lights off, by 11pm. It usually takes me half an hour or so for the thoughts to stop whirring around and the waters of my mind to still. On bad nights I might be up until 1am, having done nothing but lie in the dark.

When I was a teenager I used to stay up a lot longer, especially on weekends. At that time, I was also using the computer a lot more; nowadays I read instead. It's odd how I just cannot conceive what I did all day on my lappy in those days, because I now get bored of browsing fairly quickly.


>falling asleep as the first rays of dawn start peeking in through your blinds
I can't do it, gotta have total darkness, tape over lights on electronics, everything. I used to work nights and had to totally block and insulate my windows to get any sleep.

I work during the day now and wake at 4 on weekdays so I'm not rushed and 6 on weekends so I can sleep in (for me anyway) and still get up early enough to exercise without encroaching on my day or run errands before people get out.

Midnight-ish. I have to drive home around 10pm sometimes so i cant go to bed too early. I do tend to lose productivity because I naturally believe that hours past 7 are "My time".


I work the graveyard shift (00-08AM).

I handle it well until ~6:30AM when I start getting a bit tired, sometimes sleepy in case I'm performing easy tasks.

It is easy for me to fall asleep at 9AM, waking up later at 4PM.

It felt weird at the begining, but got used to it in a couple weeks. Honestly, until I graduate and get another job, would not switch to another shift.

What do you rolls do to keep a healthy body and mind?
I find that one of the best ways to do both consistently is training yourself in martial arts. An good starting point for learning shaolin kung fu: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9f8zb_QKZEo .

One of the ways I train mentally is by doing regular meditation. If you are new to meditaion and don't know what style to pick, start with Zazen - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LL2XUTeoUsM (turn on captions). Some other techniques that I like are detailed here: https://tricycle.org/magazine/tibetan-buddhist-meditation/ .
I think it's important to learn to feel what the chinese call qi. That does not mean you have to become religious or convince yourself that it is anything more than a phychological phenominon, but the reason I think it's important is that it can be used to reach a meditative state even when going about your daily activities. I'm not an expert, but I think a good method is to sit or lie in a position that allows you to breath with your stomach (make sure to remove constraints like belts), close your eyes and take slow, deep breaths with your stomach. As you breath in, imagine energy slowly rising from the base of your spine to the top of your scalp, and as you slowly breath out imagine that energy sinking from your scalp back down to the base of your spine.

I used to love lifting. I did a low volume near daily routine for a while and got burnt out because I just don't have the frame to gain mass. Right now I'm thinking about switching to a carnivore diet, with minimal veggies at first and a switch to mostly bodyweight exercise with the goal of getting leaner but staying more or less the same weight. The hardest part of all of this is quitting drinking.


i haven't been doing it lately, but i find that mediatating for at least 15-30 minutes a day keeps my mind at easy. also keeping a morning and night routine helps me feel more structured.


Drink tea and value happiness over perfection.

Exercise from chores and walks. I bought some weights from craiglist and do reps every other day.


I do nothing, my body is trash. My only saving grace is that I have a good diet.

Have you ever ran away from home, or been kicked out, or just been homeless in general?

>I had a good friend who died that way
That absolutely sucks, I was lucky of what happened to me I guess. It's particular that a sign of the Mother Mary saying "Protect Us" appeared where I wanted to get in the highway, guess that had a meaning being there after all.
My deepest condolences.


I've always had this urge to run away. I barely feel connected to anyone or my environment. It all feels fake. My life isn't even bad or anything, I just feel alienated from it all.


File: 1604068060063.png (29.21 KB, 640x480, ee63bb11bf0377eb8409b4b43a….png)

I just want something really bad to happen at home so I can go without guilt, do you know what I mean? I don't know how to deal with it.

Important to acknowledge that this IS a bad life. Living in dissociation and alienation and apathy is very, very far from the experience of reality we evolved for. It might not feel intense, maybe in this way of life we have no point of reference for how reality should feel, I don't know, but it absolutely is intense and you deserve a GOOD life instead of a "neutral" one.


I've always fantasized about running away but I never had the guts to without coming back within the same day. Now I'm 22 and I'm able to get my own apartment so Running away doesn't really matter anymore.
